Developers Respawn Entertainment has shared the latest update time news for Apex Legends on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, next-gen consoles and PC.

While a minor patch was released on Monday, the big Apex Legends War Games event isn’t scheduled to launch until later in the day.

War Games is a new collection event that will add a number of new modes to the game, including playlist mods, a new reward track, and new challenges.

Five new modes take the place of the regular playlist, which will not be popular with everyone.

But with War Games only going to last a short period of time, gamers can expect things to return to normal later in April.

Unlike other events, these new modes will appear as part of a rotation that continues throughout the month.

The War Games schedule is as follows:

  • Second Chance: Tuesday, 4/13 – Thursday, 4/15
  • Ultra Zones: Thursday April 15 – Monday April 19
  • Auto Banners: Monday April 19 – Wednesday April 21
  • Killing Time: Wednesday, 4/21 – Friday, 4/23
  • Armor Regen: Friday, April 23 – Tuesday, April 27

Each acquisition mode lasts up to a few days. We can’t wait to hear your favorites.


Developers Respawn Entertainment has revealed that Apex Legends update time is scheduled for Tuesday, April 13, likely between 5:00 PM and 8:00 PM BST.

And while the team hasn’t announced a set time, they’ve determined that all modes go live in the morning, PT time.

So that means the new Apex Legends update should go live on all platforms before 8pm BST.

This will also be when the new Apex Legends cosmetics for War Games go live, with Respawn telling fans this week:

War Games introduces a new rewards number featuring deserving cosmetics and goodies, including the epic Rampart and 30-30 skins. The track also includes five unlockable Battle Pass levels!

“As with previous events, you can earn up to 1,000 points per day and challenges are renewed daily. There are also stretch challenges that reward four unique badges when you complete them during the event. All of these challenges are also stackable with your Battle Pass, so you can complete several at once.

Finally, a few new skins! Pathfinder, Wraith, Lifeline, Gibby, Mirage, and Bloodhound all rock some revamped interpretations of classic looks to celebrate the war games. “


The full list of descriptions for the new modes has been released, you can find them all below:

SECOND CHANCE: We kick things off with a bang on April 13 with our first modifier: Second Chance. In this modifier, each Legend gets one free respawn per match. Once a Legend is killed, their Respawn Token is consumed as they rise back from their current location and keep all their weapons and equipment.

ULTRA ZONES: Then we’ll shake up your ideal drop strategy with Ultra Zones! Ultra Zones introduce the concept of multiple Hot Zones within one map. More epic loot, more gold items! But wait, there is more! Each Hot Zone is enveloped by a Flash Point – a recurring feature from a Season 6 LTM.

CAR BANNERS: Tune-in mid-event for automatic banners. In this modifier, we’ve made a fairly minor but snappy change to squad member respawn. The banner cards of your teammates are automatically collected.

TO KILL TIME: Feel the pressure with Killing Time. This event speeds up the match when Legends fall. During a lap, whenever a legend dies, the lap time is shortened. If any round is a bloodbath, you can bet that ring will close very quickly! Keep an eye on the lap timer and ring in this modifier.

ARMOR RAIN: We close the event with Armor Regen. That’s right: your armor recovers over time at a rate of 12 points per second. Each time you take damage, your armor will start regenerating after an 8 second delay. This delay is doubled to 16 seconds if your armor is cracked.
